Can they make a bad record?,
By A Customer
This review is from: Fold Your Hands Child, You Walk Like A Peasant (Audio CD)
The only bad words I can say about this record are "Nice day for a sulk", but I suppose they needed something light and easy-going after the tragic, harrowing "Chalet lines". "I fought in a war" is my favourite B&S track ever, I only wish they had written it earlier. It begins with simple vocals over a barely-heard accousic guitar, then builds via a gorgeous guitar line to a sublime, trumpet lead instrumental. The jazzy, "There's too much love" is brilliant as well, "Beyond the sunrise" and "Don't leave the light on baby" are less accessible but very good all the same. I can't say whether it's better or worse than their last album, because they're very much different records. This is just a peach of an album.
